Welcome to the Happy Wanderer enrichment led dog walking service and Training Through Play, professional coaching service. I am based in Accrington and cover Hyndburn and The Ribble Valley areas. I have a dedicated training studio (The Happy Hub) in Accrington, which is accessible to Rossendale, Burnley, Blackburn and the surrounding areas. See my Training Page for more details.
Specialising in small numbers, our walks are not just exercise for your special companion; my groups are tailored and structured in a way which aims to match personalities and energy and develop activities to grow your dog's confidence, provide mental stimulation as well as physical exercise, develop group social skills and, most importantly of all, for your dog to have loads of fun! See my wandering for further information and availability. Videos and daily blogs of our group wanders are uploaded to my Facebook Page at the end of each day. Please check our adventures out there and give us a like if you haven't already.
I am a Certified Pro Dog Trainer, having done my training with Absolute Dogs who completely envelop my philosophy of canine companionship. I believe in training through positive, reward and games based methods. My Training Through Play classes and 1:1 services run both weekly and bi-weekly to help as many people as I possibly can. I work with dogs of all ages, stages of learning and struggles. Dog training is an on-going process throughout your life together and therefore no dog is EVER too old to learn and no relationship is never too far gone to stop, re-address and heal, making your relationship with your dog everything you always hoped it would be.
My pre-puppy workshops give you the opportunity to 'cover all bases' before that little bundle of chaotic joy joins your family. The 1:1 service is individually tailored to specific struggles you and your dog are experiencing and allow you to follow a program together to strengthen and repair the fractures in your relationship and get the most amazing results you've been dreaming of.
My aim as a training coach is to work with you to build optimism, independence and confidence in your
relationship and develop your skills for understanding your dog's behaviour and become your dog's
All my clients have lifetime access to our closed training group where you will find a warm, comfortable and encouraging ethos and supportive network of guidance and tips.
